If you wouldn't choose to buy a share now, then I wouldn't hold it either. Over the last few years I've started to buy into more high yielders. AV, SLA, SAGA, CNA VOD BT . None of them have performed well and a few of them are -10 to -20%. Thats 3 years of dividends. On the other side I have a huge (35%) holding in two smaller companies investment trusts (Marlborough/Standard Life) and these have performed (+50%). It does make me think that growth is a better strategy than income, though the time frame is too small.

Good for GSK figures: The pound has hit a 10-month low versus the dollar (currently £1.30) after the latest inflation figures were seen as damaging the case for a UK rate rise next month.

Hydrus, I'm probably the worst person to ask as I have little knowledge in investing. My portfolio contains BLND,BP,BT,CNA,GSK (Major holding) HFD(would not choose now) KGF(would not choose now)SL,SSE & VOD. They suit me but I am sure a few will be frowned on by many experienced investors. If you are investing may I wish you the best of luck :-)

Sicker, Gary I'd be interested in knowing the types of companies you are investing in if willing to share. I have assumed 5% income is achievable, without taking too much risk, whereas you both appear to believe more is possible.

Hi Gary, Over 50% of my GSK is in ISAs, so no tax on dividends. The other half is taxed at my normal rate of income tax. Thanks for the tips. Your memory serves you well. I had a very good run with VOD (and some extensive dividends) but it finished for me when they announced the sale of their 45% stake in Verizon Wireless (I mostly sold at 206p in several tranches) it seemed to me to be an exit from a very important market to develop 'Project Spring', which I was unsure of along with other activities that VOD was planning. I may re-build a stake again as it continues to be a world leading company, and GSK could soon move into the 1600-1700p range ( I'm still looking for 1750-1950p).

Hoping it breaks 1600p soon, nice to see the market being bullish about GSK again after all this time.

TM,How much Dividend Tax do you have to pay on your GSK shares ? I can remember when you had all your money in VOD.What a great move putting it all in GSK well done indeed.When GSK,reaches £17 plus I would recommend selling half and putting it into eg DLG,TW,or even VOD if still at 180p.

Should be beneficial (i.e. more like status quo) for GSK: The Tory rebels have helped inflict the first significant defeat on May over a piece of Brexit legislation since December. They won 305-301 to keep the U.K. within the EU’s regulatory regime for medicines after Brexit.

I'm 100% in GSK and with a considerable sum. Crazy. But for the sake of discussion, if you accept the huge risks of being all-in on one share with a considerable sum, why GSK? That's the bit I don't get here. There are better choices as I think I've said before.

TM - 100% of investments, but more important is what percentage of net wealth? That could be 1%?

Agree about diversifying, GSK is a stock that I consider fairly safe longer term but I would still not have more than 10% invested in it and other investments are closer to 5%,you just never know for sure whats round the corner. Many cliche's written about investing but having a diverse portfolio is right up there as one of the most important things to consider imo. Its no coincidence that nearly all funds do it.
